The funny thing about beds


Beds are a funny business.  Not because of the funny business that goes on in them but because of the things that go on top of them - pillows. We have 156782333 pillows on our bed and my husband insists on sleeping with 156782332 of those. So when I saw this pic from Apartment Therapy I laughed out loud.



The sad part is, when you have one million functional pillows, there's precious little room for the foo foo decorative ones.  I have three Euro shams that don't even make an appearance most days. Life just isn't photo-shoot ready.

I began thinking of the one million iterations my bedroom has seen.  Every day it looks different. I should do a picture series - My Daily Bed. Here's where we began.



And here's where we are this morning.



As our motto goes, the best accessory is furry feet. 

Oh and check out my secret sharing sesh over at Little Black Door.  I love reading people's little secret's and Elizabeth is doing a great job of capturing them!

  1. Love your real life shot! At our place, pillows are to be slept on ... and we have anywhere from zero to three cats up on the at any one time.

  2. Love that sweet bed baby! I'm the queen of pillows. As I sit hear in bed I count 9. Some are feathers for scrunching, some are firm for support and some are just right for leaning into. Bed pillows rule in our boudoir!

  7. I agree, Bethany. Beds and pillows are tricky. Mine are constantly changing!

  8. I'm a pillow chopper (but not too much) and I despise talking on the phone. We would get along great together ;). P.S. Love those furry feet.

  9. That first picture would be a dream for my husband. He loves to sleep on a mountain of pillows while I prefer one. I do love to make the bed with a bunch though. My kids get to have our "furry accessory" in their room because my husband prefers the mountain of pillows over dogs...

  10. Ha ha ha!! That is so our house, too. Hubs has 4 pillows and I have 3. We have our daily bedding (a boatload of fuzzy Target blankets and old IKEA duvet inners) and, in the closet, the bedding we pull out when company comes over. On the off chance they wander in the bedroom.

  15. At least your bed is made! Mine doesn't make it that far most days. :) I love your monogrammed shams, hoping to use those when I re-do!
